Synthesis & Sound Design with Native Instruments

Sound Design with Native Instruments

Includes 6 Hours of One-on-One Mentorship

Pyramind’s Sound Design with Native Instruments is a 16-week online course. The course gives you comprehensive knowledge of Native Instruments’ Komplete toolset, as well as a deep understanding of how synthesizers and samplers work. You will employ Pyramind’s four-step sound design process on any synth without getting lost, achieving a real understanding of how sound design works – no matter the tool.

  • The four basic waveforms and where they originated (history of synthesis)
  • Pyramind’s four-step process to sound design
  • Understanding what techniques and processes to employ to achieve “that sound” you desire
  • The tools of synthesis: subtractive, wavetable, modeled, sampled, and granular, as well as drum sampling/synthesis
  • How to use the “shaping” process across multiple levels of modulation to create interesting and “moving” sounds
  • The nuts and bolts of the entire Native Instruments Komplete toolset (Battery, Massive, Monark, Retro Machines, Kontakt, Reaktor player, and Absynth)
  • Create, save and tweak patches to use over and again, and create your sound!

Mentors for this course:

These guys know what’s up. True knowledge and experience. Big help with EQ automation, compression and sound design today. And I like that I can do my lessons from anywhere. Really convenient!
